Exterior ceiling fans – For a veranda that is inviting and comfortable in the summer, consider hanging a ceiling fan outside. All exterior ceilings that have an existing ceiling lamp can have a fan installed instead of it, with the fan connected to the same electrical field and controlled by the same power switch. It is the same process as installing an internal fan, but the fan itself is specialized with stainless steel materials. Do not install on the exterior ceiling fans. (Note: If there is no existing light, you must have an electrician run a circuit and install a roof box.)
Cut power at the fuse box for outdoor roof fixture. Remove the old game order, if any, by removing the screws that hold it in the ceiling. Pull down enough to disconnect the wires behind it, and then pull it completely. Leave the cables hanging from the roof rack. In general, there will be a black, one white and one cold copper one. Find the mounting plate that comes with a ceiling fan. There will be a strip or metal plate with the screw holes in it. Attach it to the roof rack by screwing up the screw holes in the plate to the screw holes in the box and insert the supplied screws. The leads from the box should still be available around the mounting plate.

Wrap the copper wire from the exterior ceiling fans around the green screw on the mounting plate. Tighten the screw. Take the blower unit (without the blades attached) up the ladder and place it on top of the ladder, close to the electrical box. Connect the white cable from the fan to the white cable from the cabinet, hold the wire ends next to each other and twist a wire cap over them both. Connect the black cable from the fan to the black cable from the box in the same way. If your canvas has a blue thread and (for a light), attach the blue cord together with the black threads.
Keep the exterior ceiling fans facing the box? Attach the fan to the mounting plate by raising the holes in the fan assembly into the holes in the mounting plate and insert the supplied screws. Turn on the power and test the fan. When you are sure that the engine is spinning properly, turn it off and install the fan blades by unscrewing the screw holes at the inner ends of each blade with the appropriate screw holes on the housing and insert the included screws. If the electric drawer moves at all when you wear it, it means that it is not correctly mounted roof beams and cannot safely hold the weight of the fan. Have a contractor inspect and secure the box before proceeding.
